Ill luck is put. suing the Dai ling and
their little dai lings. Last week. It
will be lemembeted, that at Wllkes Mi. and Mrs. S. F. Darling vveie
ai tested on a chaige of poisoning one
ot their employes. When they piovcd
themselves guiltless of the alleged of
fense, they found their show disor
ganized and their ticasury depleted.
They settled up their bills in Wllkes
Haiio and came on to Scianton In the
hope of doing enough business to
sntiaie their bill posting and other
pi e-contt acted debts and put them
selves financially on their feet again.
They pitched their tent near the
Stni ges paik grounds Thuisd.iy and
Thutsday night attempted a pei form
ante About $1 came in nt the cn
tiance and I, "00 bojs under the tent.
The bojs saw that the clicus fone
wa a lather limited one and pio
t ceded to take advantage of It to
work olf some of theii In-bred ntls
chelf. The performance was broken
up and one of tho performeis, a young
man, was hit on the head with a
.stone, sustaining a pilnful wound.
The propiictots decided not to at
tempt any further perfoimancps, but
wait around for help. An angel, it Is
.said, has been seemed and ttta cli
cus will probably stait out today for
Yotk state, with tho hope that the
ciosslng of the state line will cut off
the hoodoo.

field Aro the Most Sorious Both
of His Legs Are Badly Crushed.
Tho Hotorman Escaped Without
Injury, but Conductor Brownell
Had His Back Soverely Strained.
Fifteen pctsons, comprising nil the
passcngcis on a south-bound car ot the
Scranton Railway compiny, which left
Cnibondnle at 7.45 o'clock, were moic
or less badly injured In a wreck which
occurred on Mnln stieet, Jermyn, about
8.10 o'clock last night.
Tho car, which was in charge of Con
ductor Brownell and Motorman Cobb,
came down the hill to the north of
Gann's hotel at a pictty lively clip.
When just opposite the hotel the front
axle broke, sending the car off the
Uack. It ran for about sixty feet along
side tho lalls and then tinned com
pletely over on Its side, dumping the
fifteen passcngeis Into a promiscuous
The startled screams of tho passen
gers quickly attiacted a number ot
pei sons, who assisted In helping out
those who were unable to ciavvl out
themselves. Those who vvete seriously
lnjuied wcie taken Into the hotel and
into the home of John McGoff, where
they were caied tor until medical as
sistance arrived.
The list of those sciiously injured, as
far as could be learned, was as fol
lows: Jacob Mendelsohn, Maj field, both
legs badly ciushed.
Mrs. John Maze, of Belmont street,
Carbondale, shoulder broken and sc
veic biulses.
John Manloy, of Jessup, back sprained
and head badly bruled.
Miss Minnie Rlvcnberg, 01 North
Mnln stieet, Caibondalc, nose bioken.
Miss Dennis, of Washington street,
Carbondale, severe bruises on the head.
Others who vveie on the car and who
sustained more or less bevcie biuiocs
and slight cuts fiom broken glass ivvete
as follows: Rev. M. D. Fuller, of Jer
myn; Thomas Hunter, Andiew Patten,
Floience Van Gordei and Mis. Bnci,
of Carbondale.
The motoiman escaped uninjured, but
Conductor Biov.nell sustained a badly
stiained back.
Mr. Mendelsohn, who is probably tho
most badly injutcd, was on the rear
platfoim, icady to alight, when the car
overturned and was pinned underneath
the car. It was several minutes befoie
ho was taken out.
On Monday He Takes Up the Duties
of County Controller The

Net Monday, July 1, County Conti oi

duties of his new ofilcc. While the cat

Contioller Jones will have John Mol
lis as his deputy, and Chailes Savage,
of Dunmote, as chief cleik.
The announcement that County Aud
itor W. E. Johns would bo chief cleik
Is euoneous. Mr. Johns and the other
two audltois, P. W. Costello and A. E.
Klefer, piopose to serve out their
Their teims o.plic Januaiy 1, 1903.
They claim that It is mnndatoiy upon
them to continue in office, as the ac

theie Is nothing In the law that will

after they have been appioved and paid
by the county commlssinncis. The
vvoik of auditing Is always about two
yeats behind. The last lepoit of the
auditors was for the year ending De
cember 31, IMS, They ate now vvoik
Ing on the year 1900, and when this In
completed they will take up the year
1901 up to the time the controller stmts
in, This work, the audtiors say, will
not be finished until late in the year
Auditor Costello will be a candidate
on the Democratic side this fall for the
ofilco of controller. Should he be elect

of auditor. This will leave two audi

City Solicitor Watson Says There Is
an Act Which Provides for a
Board to Serve Three Years.
City Solicitor Watson has discovered
an act applying to cities of tho second
class, providing for the appointment by
court of a permanent bontd of viewers
to assess benefits nnd damages caused
by public lmptovements. This net, he
says, was lepcaled by tho "ilppei" hill,
but has been lostoied to the stntute

act legulatlng the contiol and impiove

sons have ten days after the picsen

and court has the light in case such an
appeal is taken to either refei the ic

Solicitor Watson has dlscovetcd no
later act modifying or lcpenllng '.his

Supreme comt decision affecting it in
any way. He believes that It ift in

at any time to appoint a board of view

The act siys that court shall he peti

have made last year tho pioper time to

vacancy exists by the ci cation of the
boaid with the signing of tho "chaser,"
and that couit can bo petitioned at any
time to fill this vacancy.
